Notice: The following review is based on using a 2009 white Macbook. The issues that I note with various touch input methods all worked fine with a friend's Macbook Air- except "natural" scrolling, which is still messed up as explained lower in the review. I assume then that if you have a Mac that natively accepts four-finger input via its trackpad that the touch input gestures of the Wacom Bamboo will work fine for you as well. (My computer natively only supports two-finger gestures, though the tablet augments that significantly to three and most of the four-fingered gestures.)

Review:
The hardware looks nicer than it does on the box (the box is darker and more muted than the product), but not quite the same coloration as is on Amazon's site or Wacom's site. In the online pictures it looks as if the buttons on the tablet are light grey/silverish, but they're definitively black in real life. The tablet's color online appears quite white, especially on the drawing surface, but it's grey. It looks like it'll blend in perfectly next to a Macbook Pro or Macbook Air. It's rather elegant.

The four buttons are interestingly not flat. Those little flavor indents in the picture are actual indents. Its a nice design touch, and actually kind of begs you to touch it more.

I was concerned about the newer "paperlike" feel that Wacom has updated all of its products to have, but it feels good. I actually liked the smooth plastic textureless gliding of my last tablet, and still might a little bit more, but I can already tell that this tablet's texture is entirely decent and I'll adapt to it rather painlessly.
It feels good on the fingers. Might not be as smooth as Apple's glasslike surfaces, but it's analogous to the trackpads Apple used before switching to glass.

The solution for skipping lines, input delay and so on is in the bottom of this review.

Bought this tablet after spending over 4 years with a Genius G-Pen that, although not the best out there, certainly wasn't the worst. Plus, it was about time to upgrade to a true tablet like Wacom, so I went and got this one.

First off, the build quality on this thing is simply superb. The tablet feels rugged and rough, and everything was solid and working right off the bat... sort of.

The tablet deserves a 5, it really does. But it sadly loses it on account of lack of instruction on setting it up properly so it worked, as well as lack of troubleshooting support on the matter. I followed the instructions: drivers first, connect tablet later. I tried to use it, but the strokes were slow and skipped: I started to draw lines at one point, but then the "dot" would appear someplace else like 3 seconds later.

So overall, I applied the solution typed below and now the tablet works wonders. It works PERFECTLY. :3

In the end, I VERY STRONGLY RECOMMEND this option. Besides, free programs like Photoshop Elements. How can you NOT go wrong?

I hope my solution helps you, as well as this review.

***SOLUTION***

So I took to Google. After doing much googling, I found the solution. It's actually very simple. Steps below are for Windows 7 Home Edition, may slightly vary for other editions. Admin mode/run as administrator recommended:

1) Control Panel
2) Programs and Features
3) Turn Windows Features on or off
4) Look up Tablet PC Components, and remove the checkmark.
5) Choose OK, and restart the machine.
6) Once restarted, try the tablet again with fast strokes, especially on pressure-sensitive programs like SAI or Photoshop/Photoshop Elements.

I bought the Bamboo Capture as a mouse replacement for all around use and for professional graphics (Photoshop, InDesign, etc.). The idea of a combined graphics tablet / trackpad seems so obvious that I can't believe there aren't dozens of products to choose from.

Unfortunately, there's currently only the Bamboo line.

I think the hardware is pretty good. It's fairly solid and no-nonsense. My quibbles are minor ones: the USB cable is annoyingly stiff, and short enough that you must plug it into a keyboard or monitor port. The textured buttons on the pad are a goofy excess. For no good reason, the pen lacks Wacom's usual eraser.

The software is the biggest disappointment. This is ultimately good news, because it could be fixed with a driver update. Are you listening Wacom? Please?

Some issues involve missing features: you cannot create program-specific preferences. You have very limited customization options for the tablet and pen buttons. Poor implementation of dragging from the trackpad (there's no easy way to do it without using one of the buttons)

The bigger issues are bugs in the software. These include:
-Occasional pauses in responsiveness
-A bit of "momentum" to the cursor when in touch mode, that leads the cursor to overshoot when your finger stops
-Various kinds of erratic behavior (scrolling working in opposite ways in one program vs. another ... things that are not the case with a mouse or Apple trackpad.
